#56 | Results from 25th March
Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.
To pod or not to pod, that is the question!
Yesterday we asked: Do you listen to podcasts?
Podcasts aren't widely listened to by us, with only 11% saying that they love them and 35% saying they listen only occasionally.
Within the Mobilise team we love podcasts. Their ability to entertain and educate are second to none. And all whilst allowing you to do other things. For some of us they've been the accompaniment to lockdown walks, or an alternative to the radio whilst making our breakfast.
The variety is also remarkable. Whatever your passion point, you'll find something that will catch your attention.
How to listen to a podcast
Podcasts are free and available on your smartphone, tablet and computer.
If you have a Mac device find the "podcasts" app. If you have an android device you can use the Google Podcasts app
On all devices you can use Spotify to listen to podcasts.
The BBC sounds app also allows you to listen to some BBC podcasts.
There are also other apps such as Acast, which allow you to listen.
